Though far from the quintessential English landscape, the Fens has its own unique intrigue. I often find myself completely alone in this slightly eerie environment, with only birdsong and the distant hum of farm machinery for company.
This almost two-dimensional landscape, with its huge skies and featureless flat fields, inevitably draws your eye to the detail of the distant horizon, accentuating the vastness of the fens.
In my paintings I concentrate my focus on this meeting-point of land and sky to evoke a genuine feeling for the fenland landscape.
